Nov 24th 2008 5:51PM I was really disappointed with the amount of bloatware that comes with Digsby and the fact that unwanted changes are NOT easy to undo. I understand that the companies need to monetize, but somewhere along the way you reach a point where the extra crap becomes so annoying as to make the software not worth it. I think it's pretty clear that some of the previous commenters haven't run the installer lately, it's not as simple as clicking decline these days. There are multiple boxes that need to be checked/unchecked and even after that there is another popup trying to get you to make changes to your system once again.During a previous installation a few months ago, I accidentally left a box in the wrong status and had several unintended changes on my system. These were NOT easily fixable by the add/remove programs feature and required a few more intensive hacks to undo.The bottom line is that the software is pretty nifty for being free, but the amount of hassle required to install it makes other alternatives like Pidgin look that much better.
Jul 3rd 2008 7:37AM While I didn't particularly get excited about the "news", the actual release did excite me a bit.This post seems very un-Download Squad like. Personal axes to grind are probably better served on a different blog.Disappointed.
Mar 25th 2008 7:57PM I think it's more likely that MS will create a new light version of Windows 7. The light version will be custom built to run on low-powered computers. Also, MS would rather have you buy a brand new version of Windows than use an old one.
Mar 10th 2008 12:30PM I've seen bits of the interview on the net, and read a lot of the articles popping up on techmeme, and the whole situation seems odd.It certainly seems like she wasn't connected to her audience, and wasn't asking the questions they wanted to hear. Maybe Mark didn't want to talk about APIs, but his audience certainly did.Lacy had an off day and isn't deserving of some of the harshest criticisms she is getting. She needs to just smile, laugh, say "I tried my best, but didn't quite nail this one" and move on.CW summarizes the real issue best in the last paragraph. It was ironic that in a crowd of social media types, the two on center stage (interviewer and interviewed) couldn't make a connection with their target audience.Spot on.
Mar 4th 2008 2:26PM About time. I'll be glad to see IE7 go. Nice to see they are coming around and embracing standards although it's disturbing that they were considering not doing so early on.
Feb 25th 2008 11:37AM This is good. I like being "invisible" in chat by default and stopped using gmail chat for a while because they didn't have this feature.
Feb 21st 2008 12:51PM The import feature in Wordpress is quite possibly the greatest thing since sliced bread. It imports comments as well!
